    Yeah thats some funny shit.

    Hamill gonna have a good fight in "Barbarian" Boetsch from his last fight where he ragdolled his oppoent into the cage. Hamill got scary wrestling and some heavy hands I look forward to this one.

    I was looking forward to seeing Bonner submit/KO Hamill… but not to worry I have a feeling Boetsch will Hammer the hammer!!

    Im glad boetsch got this fight. 2 on short notice now, how many other fighters would take these fights? His last fight was great, good kicks and that throw was amazing, Tim is a take on all challenge kind of guy thats what mma needs right now since the top names cry over contracts and try to pick their own apponent.

    It's going to be a good fight, even though matt beat bisbing in their first bout ,I would like to see them in a second fight.

    Really good replacement by the UFC. Boetsch didn't take any damage in his fight with Heath so he should be good to go. On top of that, he impressed everyone so they are going to get him back in the cage as quick as possible. Hamill is going to have to really press the action and not let Boetsch pick him apart like he did Heath. Should be a good fight though.

    Wow…this just isn't the fight I wanted to see…Dont get me wrong I was extremely impressed by Boetsch at UFC 82 but I really wanted to see Rashad vs. Hamill…This would be a big win for Boetsch if he could pull it off but i seriously doubt it

    I completely forgot that the reason they can't put Rashad in is that he is fighting Thiago Silva in May…stupid move on my part critisizing this matchup whn it clealry has the potential to be good….Also the Evans/ Silva fight should be great, especially with both fighters being undefeated
